Super Simple: Feta Potato Salad

Ya’ll, I had planned on writing a post about how I had this feta potato salad at The Corner Kitchen in Asheville last summer and it totally rocked my world and I had to come up with my own recipe and so I made this and it was awesome and I hope want you all to enjoy it too. But then I found out today that I have to have a ROOT CANAL. TOMORROW. And so instead of an entire post you just get one really long run on sentence because I can’t focus on anything else.

This is totally lame and I should be able to focus better and write what I had originally planned. And I actually am feeling better now that I found out I’m going to have to pay less than I originally thought, because when the girl this morning gave me the itemized list of my expenses she left out a period, and so instead of one item reading $24.20 it read $2420. Punctuation counts kids, stay in school.

Of course, maybe someone who knows more about dentistry would know that an item that should only be $24.20 couldn’t possibly cost over 2 grand, but I don’t know this and so basically every time I go to the dentist I feel like a prime candidate for financial rape. Like, if she had told me that it would cost $10,000, and if I got it to them in cash by this afternoon they might be able to save my life, I probably would have been screaming at a bank teller within the hour. Same goes with my car – I can’t help but feel violated every time I leave my mechanic. I mean, how can a fucking battery cost $400?? But then of course they make me feel like if I don’t pay the insane cost they’ll give me back my defective car, and my breaks will probably fail and I’ll end up killing some poor pedestrian or myself and it will all be because I didn’t pay the $200 ransom for the battery. So I pay. Every time.

(This is probably not something I should be writing on a public site. It’s like I’m asking for it. Like, in a financial sense I have just put on a skimpy red dress and left my drink unattended at a party. A party filled with my future dentists and mechanics)

Sorry, this has absolutely nothing to do with feta potato salad. But this potato salad is really good and you should totally make it. And please don’t associate it with root canals. It’s probably best if you just look at the photos and forget this post ever existed.

Feta Potato Salad

Serves 8

2 lbs red potatoes
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
6 oz feta cheese
Salt & Pepper

Quarter each potato, and then cut each quarter in half in order to get 8 chunks from each potato. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the potatoes until they are a tender, but make sure not to over cook until they become mushy. Drain and allow to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and then allow the potato salad to chill for at least one hour before serving.

    I so LOVE The Corner Kitchen! We go there for work meetings about once a quarter. I wanted to get this potato salad once, but I can’t eat potatoes (do a number on my stomach!) and was lamenting it. When my plate came out- they had whipped up the same thing, but with caulflower for me! Right on the spot- love those people!

  5. I feel your pain, I feel like mechanics always stiff people. And as for the dentist, I cried through my wisdom teeth removal, even while I was under anesthesia! I hate surgery/doctor-like appts in general. Good luck!

    1. That potato salad looks AMAZING. Feta = nomnomnom.
    2. Totally know what you mean about the $$ – especially the mechanics!! I told them I couldnt afford the $900 bill to ‘replace my rotors’ and they made me feel like the biggest jerk on the planet.
    3. I just had a root canal a few months ago and I know this probably won’t help but it was REALLY EASY and completely pain free (During the procedure anyways, after was a little tender so take some ibuprofen if you can). I’m terrified of dentists and the guy I went to actually had me laughing if that tells you anything. (And no, I wasn’t on laughing gas ;D) Good luck! Love the way you write!

  7. I tried this the other night and it was delicious! The feta really adds something special!

    Looks great! I might try a little green pepper and hardboiled egg, to make it more like the ‘chef’s salad, of potato salads”!
